Weekly Report

weather this week has started many more people fishing dry flies, especially in the evening sessions when the fish are rising. Lots of sun throughout the week and the bright conditions have meant a lot of fish still being caught still on all different tactics, CDC, Yellow owls, Shipman Buzzers, Black Rabbit, Yellow Dancer and Daddy Muddler
We had a visit from MacTaggart Scott fishing club for a Friday evening session. This visit coincided with brilliant sunshine which did make the fishing that little more challenging as the fish were not on the surface. Friday during the day was very good fishing, John Bruin was here and he managed 12 fish with yellow owls and CDC,s many other fish were being caught early on but Friday evening was more challenging compared to the start of the day. Top rod for the club was Alex Robertson who managed to bag a lovely 5lb 4 oz rainbow. Top rod for the evening session went to Gary White who managed 8 Fish during his visit.
Saturday and Sunday was again very bright and fishing was steady on both days with Jocky Weir being the top rod for the whole weekend bringing in 18 fish. Fish all caught on a Black Rabbit at all different depths, well done Jocky fantastic fishing for the six hours, think you went home tired today smile emoticon Water temperature at the fishery is getting warmer and on Sunday morning it was hovering around 15 degrees which should bode well for good fishing.
Special mention also to Mark Monaghan who after being taught how to fly fish at Bangour by Keith Anderson caught his first Bangour Trout today smile emoticon
Please also take a look at visitor post from Barry McKerracher of regular Tam Begbie helping out the next generation of fishermen land a trout. smile emoticon
